About Us

Mission Statement

We publish books for historians, curious Mormons, and unorthodox readers. From innovative poems to slightly subversive novels, we’ve expanded our repertoire beyond award-winning histories to include all book genres with a unique take on Utah and Mormonism. If there is anything authentic, honest, of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek to publish these things.

Company History

Signature Books was founded in 1981 to promote the study of Mormonism at its intersection with American history. Over the last 35 years we’ve created a unique literary repertoire—publishing biographies, documentary histories, personal essays, poetry, regional history, fiction, and humor. What began as an outlet for Mormon history left unpublished by the LDS Church now represents the best in Utah literature.
